Serves 2-3

So refreshing especially when it's a warm summery day and you need something tasty but not too heavy.

iceberg lettuce, shredded finely
1 cup
pasta, boiled and drained (I used rotini but any short/small pasta will do)
4 tbsp
4 tbsp
plain yoghurt
1 each
small green and red capsicums, sliced
carrot, grated
potatoes, boiled peeled and cubed
some shredded/chunks of cooked chicken
salt and pepper to taste
chopped green chilli
3 tbsp
sweet corn
small cucumber, chopped or sliced
1/2 tsp
cumin powder
some chili flakes if you like your food spicier
a squeeze of lemon juice

Stir everything together and serve! Store leftovers in the fridge and have them cold.

Hi, yes you can although pasta is a form of carbs too, so if you are on diet avoid pastas/rice/breads.
